If you’re looking for a sign to give Bantu Knots a go – this is it! In six easy steps, you can take your hairstyle from every day to editorial. As well as being a great style, Bantu Knots are also an easy way to create heatless curls. Just wear them overnight and wake up to big bouncy curls come morning.
How to do Bantu Knots:
Step 1: Prepare hair the night before
Washing, detangling and sectioning your hair the night before will save heaps of time. Following your usual routine, wash and condition your hair. Split your hair into four rough sections before you detangle to reduce breakage, and use just one trusty curl milk or lightweight product.
